[ cheers ] yeah, they say that -- they say that we'll be sweating like trump while he watched the james comey hearing. [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: hey oh! >> jimmy: that's right. today former fbi director james comey testified in congress, but he would not say
in the public hearing if he thinks trump colluded with russia. then he said, but i can do this. [ laughter and applause ] but despite comey's testimony, a white house spokesperson said today is a regular thursday at the white house. america was like, yeah, that's what worries us. that's why -- [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers ] this is pretty interesting here. comey said that he kept memos of his meetings with trump because he felt that the president may lie about them. [ laughter ] even trump was like, "yeah, that sounds like me. good thinking -- [ laughter and applause ] that's good thinking on your part." turns out that when trump asked comey to dinner a few months back, it actually conflicted with some other plans that comey's made. take a look at this. >> he called me at my desk at lunchtime and asked me was i free for dinner that night. and then he said, how about 6:30? then i said whatever works for you, sir. and then i hung up and had to
call my wife up and break a a date with her. i was supposed to take her out to dinner that night. [ laughter ] [ audience oohs ] comey tried to take his wife out the next night, and she said actually trump just asked me to dinner. [ laughter and applause ] so, i mean, it's the whole -- he's screwing up the whole week. comey also talked about rumors that his conversations with trump were recorded. he said, quote, "lordy, i hope there are tapes." [ laughter ] when comey said, "lordy," mike pence was like, "eh, language!" [ laughter ] "watch it, ear muffs!" 'cause of today's hearing all the tv networks had to interrupt their normal daytime programming. but i saw that one network actually decided to show both the hearing and soap operas. and it was pretty interesting. take a look at this. >> the russians interfered in our election. ♪ [ laughter ] that's what this is about. and they will be back. >> oh, my god! >> and so they're going to try to run it down and dirty it up as much as possible.
♪ >> tell me more. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: tell me more. you guys, we have courtney b. vance on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he was fantastic as johnnie cochran in "the people versus o.j. simpson." well, in a new interview his cast mate sterling k. brown, talked about the auditioning for the role of chris darden. and this is real, very interesting, he said, "i shaved my head for the audition and memorized my lines right away, and i put on my rehearsal glasses, which are basically frames without any lenses." [ light laughter ] then brown continued adding, "they look like real glasses but they're not. [ laughter ] most glasses have lenses, these ones don't. these glasses don't have lenses. they're my rehearsal glasses." [ laughter ] you see the difference between my normal glasses and my rehearsal glasses that my normal glasses have lenses, whereas my rehearsal glasses don't. have lenses, that is." [ light laughter ] and finally, he said, "if you poke your finger through my
rehearsal glasses, you'll poke my eye. if you poke your finger through my normal glasses, it will hit the lenses because lenses are in there." [ laughter and applause ] very interesting quote. long quote. this is kind of big. i saw that in the latest batman comic, batman proposes to catwoman. [ audience ohs ] then robin was like, "who the hell is she?" [ laughter and applause ] let's get to some sports. sorry about that. [ laughter ] let's get to some -- let's get some sports here. last night was game three of the nba finals. and if you didn't get a chance to watch, that is okay because shaquille o'neal, our man, our pal, he actually put out his own highlights of the game. they're called shaqlights.
